Our environmental management
Due to its business fields, there is already an inseparable bond between Energiequelle GmbH and the issue of environmental and nature protection. At our main sites in Kallinchen and Bremen, we introduced an environmental management system in accordance with the requirements of the EMAS III Regulation in 2018.
EMAS is the Community System developed by the European Community for voluntary environmental management and auditing (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme): EMAS Regulation (EC) No. 1221/2009
Regulation (EU) 2017/1505 amended Annexes I to III of the EMAS Regulation.
Why did we choose EMAS?
EMAS is the most advanced system for sustainable environmental management. The requirements go beyond a simple management system, and also cover improvement exceeding the environmental law requirements.
We have undertaken to continuously improve our environmental performance and involve all our employees in this. Our environmental management is established practice and reinforces the identification of every individual with the environmental protection interests of Energiequelle GmbH.
Energiequelle GmbH not only actively contributes to achieving the climate protection goals set by the Federal Government and to leaving an intact environment for posterity, and has also committed itself to reducing the environmental impact of its activities to a minimum. The introduction of an environmental management system is intended to make our efforts towards constantly improving our environmental performance measurable and to continuously optimise them. We assume responsibility for ensuring environmental protection with regard to our services and business activities. We prefer service providers and suppliers whose working methods and technologies are sustainable and resource-saving. We cover the energy requirements in our offices with energy from photovoltaics, wind energy, and combined heat and power plants. Waste is avoided as far as possible.
The management views the sustainable use of resources, together with the inclusion of citizens and interested parties, as a sound foundation for lasting economic success. To ensure this success, our employees are regularly trained and qualified. Programme items in training courses also include the constant changes of the rules and legal norms. Compliance with legal requirements is a matter of course.
